Did you know that at one point, Japanese dairy farmers supplied Seattle with as much as 50% of all its dairy? How about a beloved local delicacy — a cultivated strawberry variety preserved and shared with the world through Japanese farming techniques? Farming has and continues to serve as a vital facet of the Pacific Northwest’s Japanese American community, persisting since the early 20th century despite the racially-motivated laws and policies which threatened many families’ livelihoods.

Join us on August 19th, as Dee Goto and Kay Longhi discuss their histories with Japanese American farms in Washington. Dee Goto, a descendant of Seattle dairy farmers, will be discussing the White River Dairy creamery while former president of “Friends of Mukai” Kay Longhi discusses Vashon Island’s Mukai Farm and their fruit harvests and packing innovations. Come, listen, and learn as we discuss this local history with those from our community!

About the Northwest Nikkei Museum Speaker Series
Learn about Japanese American history and community development through a new, monthly program with the Northwest Nikkei Museum (NNM)! We’ll cover a variety of topics and perspectives related to Japanese Americans in the Northwest and beyond, with a new speaker every third Friday of the month!

かつてシアトルの乳製品の半分ほどは日系の酪農家に支えられてきたことはご存知ですか?また、イチゴ栽培も日本の農業技術が用いられてきました。日系移民たちは差別的な法律や政策に脅かされながらも、20世紀初頭から農業を営み、今でも米国北西部の日系社会の中で「農業」は重要な位置にあります。8月19日のスピーカーシリーズでは、ディー・ゴトウさん、ケイ・ローンギさんをお招きして、ワシントン州の日系人農家についてお話していただきます。ゴトウさんはホワイト・リバー・デリ・クリーマリー、ローンギさんはムカイ・ファーム(バション島にあるファーム。戦線に移住してきた日系移民・デンイチロウ・ムカイ氏が作り上げた)についてです。

※本イベントの言語は英語のみとなります。
